Just watched it. gooseberry fool advert. McDonald's can't even make their own product look appetising :lol:
Where's the mum from? She used to be well fit iirc.

His dad's Kris Marshall?

Didn't realise he'd died. RIP in piece.

That's the first time I saw that advert. Thought it was quite sweet.

Am I that out of touch...no it's the children that are wrong.jpg

I believe Marshall was the unaccepted stepfather.

Get a Big Mac, take the middle bit of bread out and replace with the chicken from a McChicken Sandwich. I used nuggets as it was cheaper and I was ordering some nuggets anyway.

The ALS has a FoF patty in there as well.

Ignoring the offence issue, why did McDonalds think it would be a good idea to link their products to death or loss or bereavement? It's such a stupid idea, and to think an advertising firm got paid real cash monies for this! Just do an advert with people enjoying eating your food, you idiots, stop trying to tug on our heart-strings. Bah!

I bet half the people complaining about this are the same arseholes who think John Lewis's similarly emotion-exploiting bullshit is "beautiful".

Actually saw this ad last night and I havent a strawberry floating clue what anyone is giving out about. Its a gooseberry fool ad but thats the only noteworthy thing about it, it definitely doesnt make me want McDonalds or their fish abomination.

They have, and also pulled the advert from TV and online.

I guess you think the complaints were not justified?

Imagine being a 7 year old kid that has just lost their father and you see that advert. Is there no way that you can see how that could be upsetting?

I'm more shocked that people actually watch adverts, let alone go postal over the things..... :roll:

Nobody has gone postal.

Kids will watch any old gooseberry fool, including adverts.

My dad died. I don't feel that advert plays on my grief too greatly.

But you are not 7 years old. Nor does everyone process grief in the same way.

Hey. I was 21 when it happened and I immediately used my grief as an excuse to get a girl into bed. :nod:

That 7 year old is a strawberry floating amateur.

You are assuming that that 7 year old is not getting more gash than you did at 21.

He might be eating a McDonalds whilst balls deep inside somebody RIGHT NOW.
